Good Friday Appeal 2018
As we get closer to Easter, preparing to consume copious amounts of chocolate and hopefully enjoy one last getaway before the cold weather arrives a very special event takes place on Good Friday, as it has done for over 85 years, and the Healesville Fire Brigade is proud to be participating once more.
On Friday 30th March, we will take to our big (and not so big) trucks and travel slowly throughout Healesville and Chum Creek, blue and red lights flashing, sirens sounding as we collect for the Good Friday Appeal.
Each year the Good Friday Appeal brings together people from all parts of the community to raise much needed funds for equipment, research and education.
Last year the greater Healesville community (Healesville, Chum Creek and Badger Creek) as well as those passing through our wonderful town raised an amazing $16,384.35!
Please give generously and support a great appeal. If you miss the trucks, our crews will be in the main street collecting or at the Fire Station.
Your support gives children the best chance for a healthy start in life by ensuring the hospital continues to offer world-class care.
The strength of the Good Friday Appeal lies with the thousands of people who volunteer their time, expertise and creativity to organise fundraising activities throughout the year. Together they have raised more than $291 million for the benefit of the hospital since the Good Friday Appeal began in 1931.
The activities of the Good Friday Appeal lead up to an all-day telethon, broadcast live across Victoria on Good Friday and supported by the Herald Sun, Channel 7 and 3AW 693.
The Good Friday Appeal is a non-denominational, non-political organisation that exists solely to raise funds for the benefit of The Royal Children’s Hospital.
